MRIYH covers a full scope of earth science topics for elementary and middle school teachers, who will be guided in each section with background information, vocabulary and projects, plus cross-curricular segments and ideas for the gifted and talented students. All projects are handson, making earth science a fun and memorable learning experience. Janie Schulke, MRIYH creator and presenter, holds a bachelor degree in geology from the University of Houston. After working for Geophysical Services, Inc. from 1977-1981, Janie was a substitute teacher and taught a geology class at College for Kids, a summer program for Gifted/Talented third through eighth graders.
